Not a Cintiq, but a lot cheaper. Don't know if it's any good yet. Looks interesting though

Re: How much to charge for a 20 second commercial

In the UK, if I was to over estimate then I'd not get the job. Probably similar for everyone. I think you're missing the point of the tripling the time estimate. I give up, I don't care. Similarly, if I was to stipulate before I commenced that 'I will charge more if you make more than one set of ch...

Re: How much to charge for a 20 second commercial

I'll love to hear your experiences on finding jobs, where are you getting them? Maybe I'm looking on the wrong direction :( Well I get my jobs on Elance and the best price I can get is $1000 for 1 min but not always, one time I got a 3 min job for $4000 but it was just 1 TIME ... I'm always competi...

Re: How much to charge for a 20 second commercial

I gave up adding 'a production fee' years ago. No Producer (if he's on the ball) is going to pay you double or triple the amount it would take you to do...not with budgets these days. If you are a freelancer animation professional (here in the UK) and are approached to create a spot for TV all your...

poke about on youtube and vimeo for tutorials too. There's a lot out there, sprinkled about. Centralized and simple, not so much.

Re: Anime studio must go cloud

Couldn't you put AS on a flash drive, and take that with you? I certainly hope animation doesn't pose a threat to security somehow. I can't imagine how it would. Maybe I underestimate the nefarious kids making "South Park" knock-offs. I'm pretty sure the NSA only cares about the threat of stop-motio...

Re: How much to charge for a 20 second commercial

You people are frighteningly inexpensive. What's the end use of the commercial? i.e.: internet, local ad, national, etc.? What are they selling? How long is it going to run? Where on the planet are you located? Even if you could do the whole thing in an hour, $250 is too low. Go here: http://animati...

Re: Frame by Frame and Descisions

... Is this a lost art form or are there any of you who still use it and enjoy it's freedom? I'm kinda leaning more towards this style. In fact my next animation is completely FBF. Lost art form? What do you base that on? There's lots of frame by frame in the world. Try going over to tvpaint.com. I...

Re: Mac Workflow

4K bandwidth isn't a problem. They're just going to compress it more. HEVC seems to promise 4K @ 30 Mb/sec. Remember when DVCPro was 25 Mb/sec, and that was just SDTV? What would that make it, 400:1 compression ratio for 4K? And people think they're getting something more? Right... HDTV broadcast is...

Re: Mac Workflow

I honestly don't know where 4K is going, it is different from the failure of 3D because you don't need "glasses" to see it. Haven't even seen a 4K tv picture yet or how the quality compares. Apple of course is jumping on it with the new machines and OS. Apparently their new Mac Pro can drive 3, yes...

Re: Mac Workflow

up the resolution? I like that. I could see you performing that outside RAPP (which has so many different levels of meaning)[-they're an ad agency with locations all over the world-including Berlin-for anyone who wasn't aware]. But hey, isn't this mostly 'vector land'? What's 'resolution' mean to th...

Oh, what I use for audio: Edirol FA66 interface.

Re: Mac Workflow

$1,000 for audio isn't bad. A functional setup: Logic Pro 200 Earthworks SR20 600 M Audio M Track Plus 150 Boom Mic Stand 25 Mic cable 15 You could even cut out Logic, since the interface comes with ProTools 'lite'. Or, take a look at Reaper (60) You have GarageBand, right? That would work too. Or, ...

Re: Mac Workflow

Mics: take a look at Rode, Blue, Mojave. The Earthworks SR20 (about $600, or even a TC20-which is cheaper) is a very nice mic. Versatile, and it's a great sounding mic-it would do well with your listed audio desires. Interface: Check out Edirol, PreSonus, MOTU, Apogee, Alesis. If you want midi, you ...
